Lashanda Wildgoose will travel to Colombia to compete in the Miss Coffee International Pageant. She leaves Grand Bahama on January 3rd.

Freeport, Grand Bahama -  First runner-up of the Miss Grand Bahama 2013 pageant, Lashanda Wildgoose has just been crowned Miss Grand Bahama. Previously Shequera King wore the crown, but after competing in the Miss Heritage World  Beauty Pageant in Africa in December, Shequera claimed that inaugural title, Miss Heritage World.
Lashanda Wildgoose was crowned Miss Grand Bahama in a ceremony held on Monday December 30, 2013 at the Bell Channel Inn, who sponsored the event, and Lashanda is busy preparing for the Miss Coffee International Beauty Pageant in Manizales, Colombia in January.
Manizales is located in the Colombian Andes, and this year's pageant is the 58th version of its traditional Manizales Festivities (Feria de Manizales) which celebrates the regions cultural heritage. Miss Grand Bahama leaves on January 3rd and the pageant runs until January 12th. 

Lashanda is a poised, educated, talented, outgoing and purpose-driven young woman. 24 years old and a cum laude graduate of Missouri Valley College, Lashanda has always been known for her big smile and engaging, loving character. Lashanda has an interest in helping her community, and as a graduate and class salutatorian of St. George’s High she participated in several community service focused clubs. Today, Miss Wildgoose is an educator, and her platform is “Sexual Abuse Awareness”, an issue near and dear to her heart as it affects too many young people in the Bahamas.

"We are certain that Lashanda will put out a strong showing for us at the pageant in Colombia, and she has what it takes to win the title," said Glenn Davis, President, Miss Grand Bahama Organization.
Miss Grand Bahama's evening gown, traditional dress and national costume have been designed by Fay Rolle, of Fay Elegant Designs.
On hand to lend Miss Grand Bahama support at her crowning was Little Miss Grand Bahama, Little Miss Bahamas, Little Miss Lapetite Bahamas, Miss Heritage World Shequera King, and family and friends.

Miss Grand Bahama Organization members who have worked hard organizing and preparing both Miss King and Ms Wildgoose for their respective pageants are to be acknowledged and are Glenn Davis, President; Vanessa Hall, Assistant Director; James Bridgewater, Abi Bethel, Nathaniel Lewis, April Gow, and Rengin Johnson.
The Miss Grand Bahama Organization would like to thank the Grand Bahama Port Authority, TheBahamasWeekly.com, Bell Channel Hotel, Fay Rolle of Fay's Elegant Designs,  Escanti Shore Store, YMCA, Empress Veronica Ellis,
